Happy Valentine's Day & CHD Awareness Day

Happy Valentine's Day and CHD Awareness Day!

CHD stands for Congenital Heart Defects which my daughter was born with. Just a little fact: 1 in every 100 babies world-wide are born with CHD. Some die before even being diagnosed which is sad because with treatment they could have a great chance at life. My daughter almost died due to late diagnosis. 21 years later I'm still so glad that we got her treatment just in time!

Now on to the Valentine's Day card I made for my hubby. I used the sketch from MojoMonday to make this card. What a great sketch!

I received a shipment from I{heart}Papers and was soooo happy with the masculine paper that I wish I had ordered more! The paper is SEI Moravia. I just might have to place another order! lol The stamp on the front is JustRite Occasions. I used chalks to add a little color to the image but it doesn't show up very well in the photo.

I used Martha Stewart punches, nesties and CM tools to make the layout. The stamp on the inside is Verve's Thankful Hearts. I love that set - so many wonderful sentiments! Back to the paper... look at how it shimmers!

I hope you are having a wonderful Valentine's day and if someone you love is affected by CHD, I'm sending you an extra big (((hug)))!

Thanks for stopping by!
